Mary Did You Know?

Illustration by Phil Boatwright

Mary...did you know that your baby boy
will one day walk on water?

Mary...did you know that your baby boy
will save our sons and daughters?

Did you know that your baby boy
has come to make you new?
The child that you've delivered will
soon deliver you.

Mary...did you know that your baby boy
will give sight to a blind man?

Mary...did you know that your baby boy
will calm a storm with His hand?

Did you know that your baby boy
has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little baby you've
kissed the face of God.

The blind will see...
The deaf will hear...
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap...
The dumb will speak
the praises of the Lamb!

Mary...did you know that your baby boy
is Lord of all creation?

Mary...did you know that your baby boy
will one day rule the nations?

Did your know that your baby boy
is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping child you're holding
is the Great I Am.

-Mark Lowery

The angel said to Mary, "...You are to call Him Jesus...He will be great...and His kingdom will never end." Luke 1: 30-33

  10. Stevie, I pray you are having a fun and peaceful Christmas! We are getting ready to go to my daughter's for dinner. Avery will stay with us tonight and give her mommy a break from being up so late last night. I have been reading and drooling over the latest Stampington Books. I think I'm addicted. Is that possible? I believe your work needs to be in there. love ya, Trish
